Spring is here! I promise! It may not be super sunny every day, but as a Londoner, one has to be prepared for those sudden sunny surprises. My ultimate favourite sunny day activity without a doubt is picnicing. What’s not to love? Salads, meats, tarts, deserts: you basically get to eat anything that can possibly be crammed into a plastic pot. i.e EVERYTHING. ALTOGETHER.
As a self declared scoffer, this is a very good activity to indulge in. Grab a frisbee (try not to get it stuck in a tree like we did), a picnic rug, friends and find that non-cigarette-end-strewn patch of green and own that picnic!
Kings of Tarts
Luckily, you don’t need to own one of those nice fancy picnic baskets to win at picnic-ing, new kids on the block down in trendy Clapham Common (northern line, south London) Tart London offer all those extras for you and the best bit is that they offer some of the finest picnic food you could ever hope for. Chef Jason and Facebook marketer Adam set up the genius tart cafe to offer gourmet filled pastry with the tastiest and chunkiest fillings you ever did see (hello chorizo, roast pepper, tomato, goats cheese and pesto!).
My friends and I went along to try out the food and man it was good. Tart London have just launched their summer hamper hire service so all you have to do is pick your meal, grab the hamper and hit the popular park opposite. It’s certainly worth the trip, don’t forget to try the deserts and check out the other local indie shops whilst you’re there. Bring on sunny weekends!
